Monday, January 24, 2011 - Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions, today announced HireRight as the winner of its 2011 Partner of the Year Award. This year's recipient added significant value to Taleo customers by offering a powerful blend of fresh thinking and leadership to deliver top talent management solutions and drive growth.

"We pride ourselves on developing relationships and aligning with only the best companies, and that's what makes these awards important.
